Orser, W. Edward. "Neither Separate Nor Equal: Foreshadowing Brown in Baltimore County, 1935-1937." Maryland Historical Magazine 92 (Spring 1997), 5-35.
Annotation / Notes: Orser investigates a legal challenge to school segregation in Baltimore County in the 1930s. Argued by Thurgood Marshall, just after he joined the NAACP legal staff, the case tested the adequacy of the county's educational system for African Americans, which provided only for elementary schools in the county and for a limited number of tuition grants to attend high school in Baltimore City. Maryland courts ruled against Marshall and the NAACP at the time, but Orser contends that the court decisions laid the basis for the legal strategy which eventually succeeded before the U. S. Supreme Court in 1954.
Orser, Edward, and Joseph Arnold. Catonsville, 1880-1940: From Village to Suburb. Norfolk, VA: Donning Pubishing Co., 1989.
Annotation / Notes: This photographic history traces the history of Catonsville, on Baltimore County's west side, from the 1880s, when the village center served the needs of travelers on Frederick Road and the surrounding agricultural area, as well as afforded sites for summer homes for some of Baltimore's elite, to 1940, when growth, development, and transportation links heightened its suburban character within the Baltimore metropolitan region. The volume includes research evidence on the social make-up of the community, such as the impact of German and Irish immigrants and the role of its historic African American community.

Waesche, James F. Crowning the Gravelly Hill: A History of the Roland Park-Guilford-Homeland District. Baltimore: Maclay and Associates, 1987.
Annotation / Notes: Waesche chronicles the history of the north Baltimore communities developed by the Roland Park Company in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries which set the standard for elite suburban-style residency in the era. Under the direction of Edward Bouton, the three adjacent communities bore the stamp of Frederick Law Olmsted's landscape firm, which did some of the planning. The volume focuses upon building and development, with some attention to the social life of suburbs intended by Bouton to "catch the whole of the better class suburban development of the city."

Olson, Karen Faith. When a Woman Has a Working Life: The Transformation of Gender Relations in a Steelmaking Community. Ph.D. diss., University of Maryland at College Park, 1995.
Annotation / Notes: Captures the social world of steelworkers' wives in Dundalk, Maryland, through sixty interviews. A planned industrial community from the 1880s, steel dominated life in Dundalk. Male work culture, swing shifts, and high wages served company needs and kept women out of the paid labor force. A decline in steelmaking forced women to "get a working life," which has altered role expectations and gender relations in that community. Class bias and racial divisions are also factors in this transformation.
